My friend Mandy is the mom of the recipients of the Foster beer cake and butterfly cake. Her birthday was a few days after the butterfly cake party, and I decided to surprise her with a gucci purse cake. I used a technique I found on the internet somewhere, on how to make fondant look like croc skin. Basically you use different circular cutters and piping tips and kind of randomly push them all over a piece of fondant you've rolled out.
Her favorite color is green, so I dusted it with green luster dust.
Oh, and her husband is the Palm Pre guru, who just bought a porsche for her, so I included a palm pre that said "happy birthday Mandy" on it, and on the other side of the purse I made a gumpaste porsche key.
She was really surprised!!!
